There are lots of people who really hate the idea of getting older, and often they really hate when their birthday comes around each year. This is a great time to have a good collection of funny birthday phrases to write in their card or to use for some sort of speech at a party.
There are different categories of funny birthday phrases, however, and some are perfect for those who don’t care at all about the aging process as well. For example, “age is only a number, but [insert birthday celebrant’s name]’s just happens to be unlisted”.
Of course, if someone really is bothered by getting older, you can use funny birthday phrases like:
“Age is something that doesn’t really matter…unless you are a block of cheese.”;
“Time may wait for no man, but it stands still for women at the age of thirty”;
“A birthday is life telling you to eat more cake”;
“Apples and birthdays are both really good for you, in fact, statistics show that the more birthdays you have, the longer you live.”; and
“The best birthdays of them all, are those that haven’t even arrived yet.”
Using such gentle and yet funny birthday phrases will make it much easier for someone who is sensitive about the issue to enjoy the celebration rather than stress out about getting another year older.
If someone really doesn’t care about aging, then go right ahead and enjoy some fun teasing. For example, you could jot down some of the following lines in a birthday message, or even use them when giving a toast or speech about the celebrant.
“You are only young once, but you can be immature for a lifetime”;
“Even with all of the advances in medicine, there is still no cure for a common birthday.”;
“When [insert birthday celebrant’s name]’s was born he/she was so surprised that he/she didn’t speak for a full year and a half!”; and
“You know you’re getting old when all of the names in your little black book have ‘MD’ after them!”
Of course, don’t forget that greetings are meant to really deliver a clear message of cheer, so not too much teasing. Try, instead to remind someone of a happy thing about themselves. Do they have a good sense of humor, gentle nature, or a great laugh? Be sure that your funny message also contains a remark about the things that make this person unique too.
